Team Appaman’s Volunteer Day at Baby Buggy

November 4, 2014 in NYC

Many friends and fans of Appaman know that one of our favorite charities is Baby Buggy. Established by Jessica Seinfeld in 2001, Baby Buggy works with a network of over 100 established community-based organizations across the country to distribute new and gently used essentials, from cribs and strollers to clothing and bottles. Donations come from both individuals and from companies like Appaman.

After donations come in, the goods need to be sorted, folded and packed so that Baby Buggy can distribute them according to the needs of their network of organizations. Volunteers are often needed to help with this part of the process, so the staff at Appaman HQ thought it would be fun to head over to Baby Buggy’s NYC headquarters, located in the Garment District of Manhattan, and lend a hand ourselves for a couple of hours.

We had a great time and loved getting a chance to go behind the scenes at a great organization. Thanks to everyone at Baby Buggy for hosting our crew. Keep doing what you do!

 

Appaman’s 7 Weeks of Giving Starts Now

November 19, 2012 in Appaman News

Appaman loves this time of year. There is something in the spirit of the city that lifts us up and brings out the best in everyone. Whatever it is, we are all in!

To continue our tradition of paying it forward, we are starting the season out with two large donations to two charities we believe in and do our best to support whenever possible:

The first one is Baby Buggy. Baby Buggy is a wonderful organization that redistributes gently used products and apparel to families in need. They have been working overtime with the recent disaster from Hurricane Sandy and we were happy to ship them boxes of new Appaman gear for their families.
The other company is KIDS (Kids in Distressed Situations). This is also an organization that comes to the aid of families in need during crisis situations. KIDS also received a large clothing donation from Appaman for children in need as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
Check back over the next seven weeks to see what other charities we will be supporting during this season of giving.
